For years, I was doing software development. I used to work with different platforms and different languages. As a developer, I constantly open Google to search function' exact name and arguments, code examples or programming language tips. For example, "what is the better way to do foreach in c++". There are a hundred examples, why exactly I need to do the search.
Sometimes, I need to do copy & paste from VSCode and search in Google for a specific function name.
Today, I will share with you a small project I build in recent months.
It is a custom search engine build with Google, that has an index of developer websites only. It is available at https://codeseek.com/.
Some people will probably ask, why we need you if we have Google? I can answer that you will be more productive because you will not get unrelated search results for your search query.
In addition, I have build plugins for popular IDE - integrated development environments, like VSCode, Android Studio, IntelliJ, etc..
It is to save you a few seconds you waste on "copy & paste" from your IDE. Instead, with a right mouse click, you will be able to run the Codeseek search on the text selected.
All services are completely free. I removed the Google ads too, so, no ads.

How safe is this?
I am using google custom search at the backend, so big brother is watching.
It is not an anonymous search.
Thanks for the quick reply, I'll check it out!
